The great, broad planes of this magnificent
Chinese native bring an unmatched calm to shady
garden spots. Recessed in the center where thick,
hairy stalks are attached, the bold foliage emerges in
un-ique bright green shades, and later matures to
light green. Nearly 2 ft. across, each slightly lobed,
umbrellalike leaf is gracefully scalloped. Strong,
dark, flowering stems soar aloft to 5 ft., hosting
heavy, drooping plumes of star-shaped, creamy white
flowers. Once considered a member of the genus
Rodgersia, this monumental Astilboides thrives in moist, humus-rich soil.
Blooms June–early August.
Size: 5' 0" high x 3' 0" wide; hardy to zone 5.
Astilboides tabularis (P-1089)

As Summer draws to a close....
September is a transitory month in the garden. As summer’s end approaches, the shadows are growing longer and the days are becoming shorter. This time of year may find some landscapes a tad lackluster. When designing your garden, you may wish to include plants that remain perky thoughout the season or experience their heyday now. The plants featured in this newsletter provide a lot of late season oomph and promise to beckon you down the pathways of your garden.
Our next guided Saturday Stroll is September 16th., followed by October 7th. We hope you’ll come visit us this summer. Digging Dog's Early September 2017 Newsletter Link
